Elegant, round headed small tree. Irregularly variegated palmate leaves, which are green and white with pink highlights, some leaves being all green while some are predominantly white. Relatively strong growing while young, slowing as it reaches full size.
Moist, well drained, fertile soil in sun or part shade. Needs a position sheltered from cold winds and late frosts, which can damage emerging foliage. Prune if required, by removing dead or unwanted branches in late autumn to midwinter.
By grafting in late winter, or bud-grafts in late summer.
Suitable for growing in a container while young.
